each week that you see a little. bit. of . the northern syrian city of. intensifies its operation against the kurdish fighters in the. applause for the palestinian leader at the u.n. security council as he calls for the u.s. to show commitment to the israel palestine peace process before. leaving washington . the russian figure skaters excel at the winter olympics in south korea breaking two world records and just.
two in the afternoon here and first the northern syrian city of come under heavy shelling from the turkish army. operation to dislodge the kurdish fighters the. terrorists from that reach. but. the bombardment came after a pro syrian government militias were arrived in africa to join the fight against the turkish military turkey's president the one says the shelling forced a group of fighters to retreat ten kilometers but other reports suggest the prosimian government forces have no taking up positions in. you currently seeing images of the arrival of the aerial interesting night city
correspondent we're going to takes a closer look of what's going on with. these was a demonstration hundreds of pro assad militia fighters with tanks armored brazenly riding into africa with smiles cheers and cameras. the turks well see for yourself and korea's response was explosive loaded and delivered in artillery shells. today towards evening he was determined by the haze ts militia that about ten pickup trucks were coming towards africa they were then forced to turn back following the shelling these cases being closed and now everyone warned that this would happen no one may help the white b.g. he said as for the kurds themselves he's promised to put them in
a choke hold in me a days i need secure the preparation on the ground takes time in the coming days we were laid siege to the city of afrin here you have two major anti isis coalition partners terrorist and aggressor as they call each other turkey in the y.p. . gee partner in all but name duking it out beating each other to bloody pulp one might ask where is america the head of the us led anti isis coalition. why are you still here why are these weapons still arriving america is in the process of creating a terrorist army on our border do not encroach on our borders do not provoke us we will run out of patience let's not forget how it all began with this statement a us declaration that it would build an army of kurds to patrol the turkish border
that sent into a fit rage and it was that statement that was used to justify this new war washington backtracked it's now laying low but the damage was done the coalition imploded and it's up to others to stop this. we do not believe that the us because. the u.s. strategy depends on creating new chaos in the middle east to pursue its interests in this region it is sad washington said the fire that is now consuming its own anti isis coalition and burning africa into the ground the us role has been reduced to diligently expressing its concern worry but not regret see across one of the middle easterners joshua landis told us he thinks the kurds are falling victims of america's power play in the region to. the u.s.
has been supplying a lot of weaponry to the kurds east of the euphrates when the united states first entered syria if it turkey in the united states came up to an agreement that everything west you priest was turbans everything east of the euphrates the united states many beige is a sore point but that's still to be decided on but that's the way it's been and the united states it's been giving a lot of weapons to the white egypt now it's obviously telling a white sheet do not attack turkey with those weapons because the moment you do that you will justify everything that aired a war that says is going to happen that you're connected with it and so the united states is sitting on the kurds in essence is telling them why peachy you have to sacrifice your brothers and me to preserve us out east for its multiple trouble spots still in syria
a spike in violence in the eastern ghouta area too close to the syrian capital damascus to tell you about it's provoked an outcry from the united nations though because ations calling for says ation of hostilities there following reports the government airstrikes on the rebel own place of killed at least one hundred people in recent days eastern ghouta is one of the few remaining opposition strongholds the syrian government says its air raids against the militants there in retaliation for shelling attacks that have killed civilians in the capital the area was among the deescalation zones you may recall that were stablished by the warring parties last year. next we continue to look at recent discoveries from japan's official archives which shed light on the grim government run eugenics program which left thousands of people infertile over the decades it was in force jacqueline bukas got the story. records of only a fraction of the people subjected to sterilization have been revealed but this may finally help the victims to get justice after decades of suffering and some are
already taking action has a hard time going through the middle school that's when i was diagnosed with a mental disability my teacher took me for a medical check and then i was taken to hospital that's all i remember at the time my parents told me that i was operated on and now i cannot have babies my father disposed to sign documents by my teacher and welfare offices there are many more victims the government should make apologies and pay compensation to them it's believe there are up to twenty five thousand victims all under the eugenics protection law in force for almost forty years as late as the mid ninety's the procedures were in order to quote preserve the purity of the japanese race people with mental disabilities or hereditary diseases were targeted but misdiagnosis of such conditions was common causing even more unnecessary suffering we managed to speak to the relative of one such victim when i got married my mother in law told me that my sister has been sterilized after i made an information disclosure
request i found out she was only fifteen when that your ration took place genetic mental disease was the only listed reason for her sterilization however it is not true when she was a one year old she became mentally handicapped because of the anesthesia three different doctors gave her so she didn't have a genetic condition and over sixteen thousand cases the procedure was even carried out without consent and shockingly victims were as young as nine years old appeals to admit the practice had taken place were dismissed for years with victims being told that the evidence was simply gone the only question is who's responsible for all of this to me is the government's fault thanks akita the program as well as the national legislature which adopted the law needs to take responsibility and make apologies a soonest possible doctors well sort of. sponsible but in a way that we used by the government. i think that the now defunct eugenic
protection law existed for the sole purpose to reject band of disease. when i requested the disclosure of these documents regarding my sister surgery they told me the files which are said to have been strictly process had been thrown away the evidence of the mutilation of my sister's body were simply trashed in the case of another big mrs zucker the documents were thrown into the fire when i heard about it i was beside myself with a. hotlines have been set up to bring together britain's for what's likely to be an extremely long and traumatic battle for justice but while victims one compensation they say money isn't the main reason their goal is to create awareness to ensure that horrors like this never take place again. there's been attempts encounter at the united nations security council between the u.s. envoy and the palestinian leader mahmoud abbas to live a vitriolic address on tuesday aimed squarely at washington for recognizing jerusalem as the israeli capital and claiming america's not committed to the peace
process therefore. the us administration took an unlawful decision which was rejected by the international community to take the issue of jerusalem off the table and to recognize the city as israel's capital almost gradually but we are ready to begin negotiations immediately in order to achieve peace and security for all in our region and the world. and maybe to further make a point here right after finishing his speech stood up walked right out of the meeting not waiting for a response from the u.s. envoy nikki haley. even though he has left the room i will dress the balance of my remarks to him. president must i sit here today offering the outstretched hand of the united states to the palestinian people but i will decline the advice i was recently given by your tough negotiator side erica i will
not shut up or nikki haley was reacting to earlier comments from the palestinians chief peace negotiator he told her to be quiet and not criticize the palestinian leadership of palestine chronicle told us he thinks america is now becoming a forward wheel in the peace process the us has lost its top artists have beaten any kind of international mechanism that would attempt to bring peace and reconciliation between at this time and israel they have lost their right to do so when they decided to flee and biased unfair and cruel is really position the us has never been an honest broker mahmoud abbas trying to send a message to the palestinian people that after decades of pursuing this frivolous
and futile peace process and nothing has been achieved as a result his message to the palestinian people that i'm still here and i'm still fighting and i'm still challenging the american diktats and american foreign policy . to world records were broken the space of just fifteen minutes by russian athletes at the winter olympics in south korea earlier the first was set by figure skater getting in the women short program her school was then topped by a teammate the leaders a get of the details from his patrol go. the younger russian figure skater had been hot on the heels of her older teammate for a very long time and there you have it again in mean vedova could all the enjoy her world record for a few minutes because then i mean as they did even better and scored an extra point as to what it takes to set these kind of world records both figure skaters include
some of the most sophisticated elements in the sport and we see them at the end of the program all these difficult jumps when the athletes are more worn out it's a higher risk but if everything goes smoothly it automatically adds skyrocketing points i guess something precious for us journalists to take note of was the reaction of you gave the following her and michael a performance she said it was not my best but it was ok and apparently that ok was enough for a world record while indeed we heard from experts in the sport that zito us program was more difficult so i guess she definitely deserve it when it comes to the other competitors it seems that now they can only hope for bronze they are way too far behind so it looks like the female figure skating competition at these olympics and feeling chang is turning into a had to head class between two russian teenage girls eighteen year old the of

swept his country back in two hundred eleven since then he's often be in the headlines peace also present the bahrain center for human rights between twenty twelve and twenty fourteen he was imprisoned for organizing unauthorized demonstrations and the two years he's currently serving were hunted down for quote publishing and disseminating rumors and false news and quote filing connection with a number of t.v. interviews he gave in twenty fifteen and sixteen shake made from osama a senior adviser at the bahrain center for human rights told us the latest verdict here against now bill rodgers completely unjust. well the sentence is a clear marker read to just a slap to the rule of law human rights values and standards and principles. after hardly more than twenty court hearings. to resign substantial evidence to charge an a b. . was he focused on warning of. the destructive
result of war in yemen he called upon to resort to dialogue to peace rather than to war on destruction. being charged today for expressing his views all pooly. america's world renowned yale university is launching a new study program aimed at deconstructing what it means to be white in modern day society module perry looks at how the issue of race permeates almost every aspect of culture in economic life in the united states not everyone's happy about it is similar accounts been finding out. racial tensions in the u.s. go back centuries from colonization and genocide to slavery and racial segregation the country's troubled past continues to fuel and tag an ism between the races and people of color have a waged war on what they see as a system that favors white supremacy but what's been happening in the us seems to have turned the tables reinforcing the conversation on so-called reverse racism for
example yale university has introduced a course in countering whiteness through plays poems and memoirs and to quote the program constructing whiteness counter narratives in any creative form and it's not just yale many universities in the us are making quote white awareness programs available but critics are fighting back or using that white awareness programs are just as racist as black or honest ones in another extremely divisive case some women of color felt isolated and unsafe in their communities so they organized a healing retreat and coast rica and then banned white people from attending to white people is to let us have our space let us have our room and go hang out with other white people broke a you know you've done enough damage well of course screams of hypocrisy and reverse racism ensued and then there's this picture depicting black women beheading white women the artist explained it's a quote unquote sort of a play on the kill whitey thing critics are outraged alleging well you guessed it
reverse racism they say imagine what would happen if a white person was shown chopping off a black woman's head however when it comes to all of these claims reverse racism may not exactly stand up to scrutiny when looking at the history of the country's racial dynamics but whether or not these cases qualify as hypocrisy or reverse racism the question remains will any of this actually qual racial tensions in the u.s. or will this only result in further polarization. so mark on our to washington. well let's guess with social social come in they come and tell you to anthony bryan logan he believes that a double standard at play in us society here is if it was a white woman holding a black woman say after a painter way the painter would be called everything he'd be called a neo nazi supremacist because the default reaction to anybody white doing something against somebody black or even painting a picture is to say that white person is
a racist because the default thought process is dead white people are racist anyway and then some say that if you're not white you can not be races which is really ridiculous there's been a lot of things floating around about white supremacy and stuff like that these things become normalized is seen as a rational thing to say in public so people again they get to feel guilty and when i tell everybody hey i'm not our races look at me i'm fightin the gays the white man i'm fighting to get by supremacies you get some white people day say to even a white and say how do you hate whites your way it doesn't make any sense was like do you hate your parents do you hate your grandparents is really a crazy thing. latest pictures in from syria there you can follow all the latest with the on going horrors in that country two major flashpoints they continuing today we're going to continue to update you on a course of politicians from here for now thanks for watching this latest one with me kevin though in about with more in just over half an hour and a program's continuing off the international what after this break as well.
